End of the ARF campaign first month

Dear friends! 

Thanks to your generous donations, ARF has made an amazing progress in our campaign to raise money for mobile health services for drug users in Moscow and raise awareness about the issue of repressive drug policy in Russia. Less than in one month we have raised over 9000USD from almost 100 donors which has really given the Moscow team hope! Moreover, the campaign has sparked quite some discussions in the Russian social media and press about whether it is worthwhile to gather money for services for people who use drugs. In the last month, the situation in Russia and ARF work has also been publicized by the leading international media, including the Lancet and the Independent. The ARF film has been translated to EnglishBulgarian, German, French, Spanish, Hungarian and Portuegese!!

So, now that we are getting this kind of attention, we are even more determined prove to doubters that people believe in the value of the lives of people who use drugs!

Now, the first month of our campaign comes to an end. We have also ranked a high score on the Global Giving leader board - now we're on the 7th place in the competition to raise the most money and for having the most donors. If we are among the top 3 by April 30, Global Giving will contribute up to 3000 USD bonus to our pot! Please consider spreading the word around to your friends and colleagues, and ask them to support ARF and drug users in Moscow. 

Please help us to receive additional bonus prizes from the GlobalGiving! To this message i attach a letter that we have used to outreach to our friends and colleagues which you may also use as a template please! 

Once again, very warm thank you from all the ARF team and from the participants of our project in Moscow!! We wish you the greatest May holidays!! 

Anya and the ARF team
